It’s the fallout episode of Dynamite after a stacked card at Revolution and an episode of NXT that promises a touch of violence as TakeOver: Tampa Bay gets closer.
Here’s what to expect from the 4 March edition of the Wednesday Night War.
NXT is set to deliver on violence with two Steel Cage matches, as two blood feuds are set to square off inside of them. First, The Velveteen Dream takes on Roderick Strong in a rivalry that has seen psychological warfare employed by Dream, provoking Strong with imagery of his family. In the other match, Dakota Kai and Teagan Nox take their Street Fight to the next level as they step into the cage, removing Kai’s new enforcer, Raquel González from the equation.vIt seems strange to see them escalate both rivalries to a cage already– particularly Strong and Dream– but with TakeOver: Tampa Bay over a month away, this gives NXT a bit of a PPV feel before then. Hopefully neither of these are blow-offs yet.
Strong’s Undisputed Era brothers are also in action, as Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish take on Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch as they perhaps look to get back on track to challenging The BroserWeights for the Tag Team Championship.
After being attacked by Imperium members Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel last week as a message from their Ring General, WALTER, will Finn Bálor have revenge on his mind?
And speaking of revenge, will Tommaso Ciampa be looking to get his own on Johnny Gargano after “Johnny Wrestling” attacked “The Blackheart” following his defeat of Austin Theory last week?
The fallout from Revolution is in Denver, as Dynamite is live from the 1st Bank Center.
So far four matches have been announced, including New AEW Champion Jon Moxley teaming with Darby Allin as they take on their Revolution opponents Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara. This will either set the stage for a continued feud for the new champion with the former one, or put that rivalry to rest as a new challenger rises up to take on Mox. As for Allin, he had made it clear either that Guevara was just the first of the members of The Inner Circle that he wanted revenge on for injuring his throat with his skateboard weeks ago, so this is likely just another chapter in the longer story for him.
“Boom Boom” Colt Cabana will also be making his AEW debut, as he teams with SCU to take on The Dark Order. Will we finally see the debut of “The Exalted One” Matt Hardy as he has officially announced his departure from WWE and Evil Uno implied that his appearance is near? If so, it will be a huge moment for AEW.
Lance Archer is also scheduled to make his debut.
In other action, Pac takes on Chuck Taylor, after he defeated his ally Orange Cassidy at Revolution, possibly furthering this rivalry, while in his second AEW match after defeating Dustin Rhodes, Jake Hager takes on QT Marshall, while Big Swole will also be in action.
And will Cody be making an appearance after losing to MJF this past Saturday? Is the rivalry over, or is there more violence down the road for this blood feud?
It all goes down tonight at 8pm EST on TNT and USA Network!
